February 1st marks the start of Black History Month—an annual celebration of the African-American community’s achievements. Every year during this time, people recognize prominent African-Americans in schools, politics, and social environments.
First Lady Melania Trump commented on Black History Month Thursday morning via social media.
On Twitter, the First Lady stated, “Today marks the start of [Black History Month]. Let this be a time to come together in a celebration of diversity.”
In response to her statement that emphasized coming together to celebrate diversity, liberals attacked the First Lady and our President of the United States.
Others came to her defense, insisting that she does not deserve to face backlash over a genuine statement with a strong message.
